Birds of Berkeley
80 pages. Paper-over-board.
Heyday Press, Berkeley, CA

Birds of Berkeley is a book about the natural and cultural history of a city seen through the lens of urban birds. In other words, it's as much an ode to Berkeley as it is a field guide. Featuring 25 local species in full-color illustration. Please see Heyday or for more information. 


Advanced Praise:

Birds of Berkeley is more than an identification guide. It takes us beyond the who’s who to why we care. Learn how to think about birds in a way that will deepen your love of feathered things.”  

~ John Muir Laws, author of The Laws Field Guide to the Sierra Nevada

"Imagine a Berkeley boy-hatchling, raised by birds, grows up to write about his favorite feathered friends in the neighborhood. That’s pretty much the essence of this charming volume by local Oliver James.”

 ~ Cindy Margulis, Executive Director, Golden Gate Audubon Society
